Show minus 41 days and counting.
Yesterday I met Philly underground poet Michael Grover (ex-ULA) and made peace with him so he can appear in the big July 16th Jack Saunders reading, which is getting every day bigger and bigger.
Whatever one might want to say about Grover, he IS one of the absolute spoken word masters in this country-- having first proved himself in L.A.-- and promises to blow the doors off when he reads. It will be exciting.
Both Wred Fright and Crazy Carl Robinson, ULA Superstars, say they should be able to make the reading as well. Fun and excitement in store like you would not believe. The only problem I have now is deciding who can follow these people. Not many!
ALSO: Bernice Mullins and Noah Cicero promise to be there as well. Their worries are that they're too anti-social working-class and won't be able to fit in with literary folk. Obviously they've never met the ULA!
OTHERS: Frank Walsh, Tim Hall, George Balgobin, Sarah Scheckter, Patrick King, Brady Russell, and a host of locals I'll be soon announcing.
WHERE: The Medusa Lounge, 21st Street near Chestnut.
WHEN: 5 p.m. to whenever, Saturday, July 16th.
Many more details about the headliner and the rest of an awesome card will follow in forthcoming days on this blog!!
